       Waiver Wire Gemstones: Week 7

                   College Fantasy Football






Arion Worthman, Air Force

Ownership Percentage: 31%

Over the last three games, the junior field general has rushed for 395 yards with eight touchdowns on 80 carries. Two weeks ago against Navy, Worthman passed for 257 yards and two touchdowns. He has exceeded 30 fantasy points in each of the last three weeks. If you need a quarterback, Worthman merits picking up.


Mike White, Western Kentucky

Ownership Percentage: 29%

In 2016, Mike White passed for well over 4,000 yards and 37 aerial strikes. After a slow start this season, many college football diehards likely dropped the senior field general. Western Kentucky has turned its season around with consecutive victories, and White is playing well. He hurled five touchdowns and passed for 398 yards against Charlotte on Saturday. 




Justice Hansen, Arkansas State

Ownership Percentage: 24%

The Red Wolves have scored 94 points in the last two games, and Justice Hansen has completed nine touchdown passes. In the first game of the season, he passed for 415 yards at Nebraska and has surpassed 300 yards three times this year. The Sun Belt Conference does not employ dominant defenses, and Hansen should continue to produce points.


Sam Ehlinger, Texas

Ownership Percentage: 8%

A highly-touted, high school prospect, Sam Ehlinger started the last two games for the Longhorns and demonstrated the praise scouts asserted. He has thrown 89 passes, completed 49 and tossed three aerial strikes. A dual-threat, Ehlinger has exceeded the century mark on the ground in both starts and crossed the finished line once. He is a tragically under-owned quarterback among fantasy managers.


Running Backs

Travis Homer, Miami
Ownership Percentage: 19%
With Mark Walton sidelined for the rest of the season, Travis Homer inherits the lead role in the backfield for the Hurricanes. He dominated Georgia Tech with 170 yards rushing and a touchdown while tallying two receptions for 18 yards and a score.  Despite a deluge of rain, Homer held onto the pigskin and hit the holes, driving through defenders. In the next two weeks, Miami hosts Syracuse and travels to North Carolina.
Spencer Brown, UAB
Ownership Percentage: 13%
The Blazers did not play football during the past two campaigns, and returned to FBS competition this season. Even the most optimistic UAB fanatic must be amazed with a 4-2 mark this year. By far, running back Spencer Brown has been the teams’ most valuable player. He has rushed for 165 and 167 yards in back-to-back games and scored twice. The program’s success is one of the best narratives in college football, and Brown is leading the parade. 
A.J. Dillon, Boston College
Ownership Percentage: 2%
In college fantasy football over the weekend, the freshman scored more points (51.2) than any other ball carrier with 272 yards rushing and four touchdowns against Louisville. At 6-foot-0 and 240 pounds, Dillon, a powerful runner, was a highly ranked high school prospect who chose Boston College over Michigan. Grab Dillon immediately off waivers this week. 
Wide Receivers
Jalen Guyton, North Texas
Ownership Percentage: 45%
The best college fantasy footballers analyze the rosters and depth charts of all 130 teams in the FBS. The Mean Green are ranked 25th in total offense (499 ypg.) and points per game (37.2). And their receiver, Jalen Guyton, stands among the best in the country with 32 catches for 626 yards and seven touchdowns. He has exceed 100 yards in three contests and averaged 19.6 YPC. Over the last two contests, he has been even better. The 6-foot-1, 194-pound junior has snatched 22 catches for 393 yards and three touchdowns. He is still available in the majority of leagues and should be acquired immediately.
Ka’Raun White, West Virginia
Ownership Percentage: 23%
One of my coveted late-round draft picks during the summer, Ka’Raun White disappeared early in the 2017 campaign and possibly jettisoned from many fantasy rosters. The Mountaineers have one of the elite passing games in the nation behind quarterback Will Grier, who has tossed 21 touchdowns. In the past two games, White has conquered rivals and decorated the box score. He has 14 receptions for over 250 yards and three touchdowns. The remaining Big 12 Conference schedule should not pose any challenges until the final game of the year at Oklahoma.
